Kenaitze Indian Tribe

The Kenaitze Indian Tribe is a sovereign nation recognized in 1971 under the Indian Reorganization Act as amended for Alaska. The tribe has more than 1,600 tribal members who live across the Kenai Peninsula and beyond. We employ about 300 full-time and part-time employees to provide health care, social services, justice, education, and employment services and opportunities to Alaska Native and American Indian people. Many of our programs and services are open to residents of the surrrounding community. 

It’s been thousands of years since our people, the Kahtnuht’ana Dena’ina, first inhabited the Kenai Peninsula. We call this area Yaghanen, the good land. We are happy to say Naqantugheduł – the tide is coming in. We say the tide is coming in because it’s an exciting time for the tribe and our people as we continue to work toward our mission: To assure Kahtnuht’ana Dena’ina thrive forever.
